Breaking Ground11 May – 29 Sep
Yorkshire Sculptors Group
The term ‘breaking-ground’ has several interpretations: it can mean ‘to make progress by doing something completely different’ or ‘to begin digging into the earth for new construction’. The members of the Yorkshire Sculptors Group will be rising to the challenge and interpreting the exhibition theme in many different ways, reflecting their individual, diverse and deeply personal ways of making sculpture.
Come join me at Patchings Art Centre tomorrow for the preview of our 'Breaking Ground' exhibition, several members will be talking about their work including myself.
Please remember all of the animals that fought in our battles
